Watch: Kelly Clarkson Reveals Her Dating Red Flags After Divorce

For Kelly Clarkson, life would suck without her kids.

At the very least, she'd be down a lot of content. As the singer exclusively shared with E! News her phone is filled with footage of daughter River Rose, 9, and son Remington "Remy" Alexander, 7, "dancing or singing or acting or doing something in the house."

"They both are little entertainers," she said of her kids, who she shares with ex Brandon Blackstock. "They love pretend. They love make believe and creating worlds." (For more from Kelly, watch E! News tonight, June 22 at 11 p.m.)

However, that doesn't mean they're ready to follow in her footsteps.

"They're too young," Kelly explained. "You don't really know where they're gonna go, but I think the coolest part is having the ability...to give your kids the opportunity you didn't have growing up. I think that's the most incredible thing, just show them everything that you think might be helpful and see where they go."

And though she finalized her divorce more than a year ago, Kelly is no rush to start dating.

"I'm just enjoying me and I'm enjoying my children and I'm enjoying my work," the 41-year-old said. "I love what I'm doing right now. And I am a little hesitant, because stepparent situations aren't always great for everyone, or even having another person involved."

Calling herself a "mama bear," the talk show host added, "It's already confusing enough sometimes, like your parents living in different places, and divorce can be hard on kids. So, I'm honestly not looking at all."

Kelly's 10th studio album, Chemistry, drops on June 23. Her Las Vegas residency, Chemistry: An Intimate Evening, runs from July 28 to August 19.
